Gematria of Raflifu: 208; 406; 664

Raflifu is the lord of the earth and the depths of the sea. He is a guardian of great knowledge who resides within the Tunnels of Set– i.e. the pathways between the ten primary spheres of the Qliphoth. Knives and staves are sacred to him. Raflifu is a healer, a protector, and a pyschopomp who rules shielding, banishing, exorcism, warding, the blocking of curses, and defense against psychic attacks. He can help the magickian develop natural defenses against psychic attacks and vampyrism as well as help her cross the abyss.

Raflifu is the lord of the crossroads and the archdemonic divinity of the fire of the abyss. He can greatly strengthen astral sight and personal magnetism, and he is an excellent tutor and guide in Qliphothic alchemy, glamour magick, the unfolding of new powers/ablities, astrology, homicide, blood sacrifice, sanguine vampyrism, skyring, death magick, and some stellar magick. He can impart stealth and interpersonal charisma to the witch. Michael W. Ford succintly refers to Raflifu as a vampyre in his book Sekhem Apep, which perfectly corresponds to my gnosis (note: precisely zero traditional demonographical treatises discussing Raflifu ever refer to him as a vampyre aside from Ford’s and my own, and I had yet to peruse Sekhem Apep when I communed with Raflifu).

Raflifu can teach the witch to shapeshift her astral double into a dragon, a lion, or an owl. The graveyard and crossroads are excellent places for rites to him. He specializes in cleansing and divination by fire, developing alchemical gold, monetary pursuits, and the enchantment and consecration of crystal balls. He can cause a target to incur sickness and atrophy. If you collect insects in a jar and offer them to him via burning, he will engender arson at your disposal.

According to Liber Obsidian Obscura by Alexander Winfield Dray, Raflifu rules the “Sorcery of the Unfiltered Self,” which Dray defines as “Methods of Accessing the Shadow Self without interference from filters, working with Pure Expression of Will, etc” in his grimoire.

Raflifu can initiate the witch into what is called Atlantean magick– i.e. magick using a primal current of energy. Regardless of the moniker, Atlantean magick in no way implies or requires the literal existence of the mythical island of Atlantis. Raflifu can engender destruction via fire magick and create thoughtforms which protect and/or heal specified persons.

Raflifu imparts the strength necessary for quiescence– vocal silence, stillness of body, and mindfulness/being present. He can enchant an automobile to prevent its being pulled over and to become concealed during a car chase or prior to being towed. He governs happenings regarding the government and affords the witch the opportunity to rule a new world. He governs one’s sense of space and time as well as the power of memory– ruling both the preservation of memories and the forgetting of the past.

Raflifu appeared to me in a form comparable to a genie from a Disney movie, albeit with completely red skin (if you can call it skin). He had completely black eyes and dark, greyish-brownish horns. I had difficulty discerning his gender, and apparently Frater 414 did as well. He kinda maybe possibly looked male-ish (I think) (I suppose) (I don’t know), but fuck it, I’m using male pronouns for convenience (even though I used the pronoun “hir” in my notes during communion with the the spirit).

Raflifu is the archdemon of the tunnel between the Qliphothic spheres known as Samael (Mercury/Adramelech) and Gamaliel (Black Moon/Lilith), in which tunnel dwell Will-o-wisps. His name means “the Great Haggler” and he is often paired with Gargophias.

Cort Williams describes the tunnel in Qliphothic Wor(L)ds as follows:

The Qliphothic tunnel connecting Samael and Gamaliel. Mercury acting upon the Moon via the influence of the Sun. The alchemical marriagennbetween the Solar consciousness of Samael and the Lunar consciousness of Lilith.

If Shalicu is the communication of Mericurial lore in a sudden instance of catastrophic illumination, then Raflifu is its communication in a more constant and gentle manner. If the former can be likened to the impact of the impact of a meteor, which engulfs the old Aeon in an apocalyptic fire in the course of inaugurating a new Aeon, than the latter an be likened to the light of the sun-A constant transmission of gnosis unto the world via the intermediary of the reflecting mirror of his mate the moon, the outpouring of the elixir of knowledge into the chalice of his bride Lilith that it might then be broadcast unto the world via the medium of the oneiric realm.

According to the Shadow Tarot by Linda Falorio:

Here in the 30th Tunnel of Raflifu are the Masks of God, here are the masks of personality worn by the Self through successive incarnations. Here is the Dark King, anointed with sepia cuttlefish ink, here is The Wicker Man, Cuchulain in the Cauldron of Caridwen undergoing rebirth and illumination. Here is The Buddha beneath his Bo-tree, and Wotan hanging on the world tree Ygdrasill, here is Inanna disrobed to enter Ereshkigal’s dark realm, there to hang upon a peg like rotting meat. Here is Ankh-af-na-Khonsu coming forth from Amenta to take his pleasure among the living. Here, is ego-surrendered, setting the eternal spirit free.

The atavism of the tunnel is the leopard– an interesting animal, in that it is far more vicious and deadly than the tiger or the lion. That is to say, it’s the most baneful of the cats. The jaguar’s fur was often seen as an allusion to the stars, so perhaps it is such with the leopard.

According to the Shadow Tarot:

The need to work with the energies of the 30th Tunnel of Raflifu is signaled when we encounter in our lives tendencies to hero-worship, when we see dependence on a “higher power”, perhaps accompanied by feelings of worthlessness, insignificance and powerlessness. Here too, we may find overweening pride and glorification of the personal ego, as well as confusion and internal conflict, a lack of centering, of direction, and of purpose. We may encounter dissatisfaction, and depression, as well as the intellectualization of motivations accompanied by alienation from true feelings, which leads to callousness and failure to see the Spirit inherent in all Life and in the Earth herself.

Among the powers we may achieve through working in the 30th Tunnel of Raflifu is transcendence of the ego, and evolution beyond the Existential Centaur phase of psychological development to the Transpersonal, Subtle, and Causal realms, giving access to the wealth of the subconscious. In this Tunnel we find access to past-life, reincarnation awarenesses, we find access to the Self whose hidden face lies beyond the masks, and access to the Magick which underlies the phenomenal world. Here we may contact our Inner Guides, and thus effectively channel transpersonal material. Here we find the source of our own creative genius, arriving at a cultured innocence, and the inner peace necessary to create the meaning of our lives.

By following the path of Wu-Wei, Kia, Neither-Neither, NOX, by removing ego-interference through the use of mantras and meditation, through exhaustion and dissipation, the natural lucid wisdom of subconsciousness comes through, uniting body, mind, cellular consciousness, and animal wisdom into a healthy, effortlessly functioning, unarmoured personality — a warrior on the path with heart.

Danger comes through working in this Tunnel of Raflifu without prior healthy ego-development and integration, which can lead to obsessions, possession, to psychic and/or psychological disintegration of the personality and fragile ego.

The magickal chant I channeled for Raflifu is “Rattimgethall Onkimgallor Raflifu Onjurrawl.” In addition to this, the magickal chant “Liftoach Pandemonium, Et Germinet Raflifu,” which chant translates to “Open the Infernal Plane, and Bring Forth Raflifu” calls Raflifu forth while simultaneously presencing Qliphothic energy to strengthen the sacred space. The chant “Baruch ha-Raflifu,” meaning “Blessed is Raflifu,” may also be of use.

Vassago is a spirit of necromancy, divination, and empowerment. According to Aleister Crowley, he is “of the same nature as Agares.” His disposition is dark, malevolent, and baleful, and yet he is kindly disposed to the sorcerer. Said to be one of the Nephilim, he is a highly sophisticated entity. He faithfully defends the sorcerer and engenders the obliteration of her enemies. While he is ascribed to the rank of Prince in the Goetia, he claimed the rank of “Archminister” during my communion with him. Michael W. Ford describes him in Luciferian Goetia as follows:

Vassago is an angelic ruler of the tarot; silently invoked this Prince may produce
impulses and initiatory associations via the tarot thus allowing instinct to grow with association of such tools’ of divination. Vassago is also ideal for the willed divination of future initiation, a Gateway to the Luciferian Realm of Spiritual development. Vassago appears in the black mirror as a wind-rushed robed spirit who is both angel and demonic shadow, who has many arms and talon-fingers.

In Mark of Qayin, Asha’Shedim describes the appearance of Vassago as follows:

Vassago appears as a man with a long black blood stained robe. At his waist he has the severed heads of mundanes who tried to trick the trickster. Although he appears human in his causal form at first glance, further inspection reveals that he has many arms and long talonfingers which he uses to gouge out the eyes of the profane.

Vassago is a predatory destroyer who pursues opportunities to engender destruction. He appeared to me in a vision as a musclebound man with mouth full of teeth that appear that look fit to devour a man whole. He had long, black talons coming from his fingers and he appeared on a black throne within a realm of darkness.

Sigils of Vasago
Above: Traditional Sigils of Vassago

According to Mastering Witchcraft by Paul Huson:

So great is the power of Vassago, however (he is a “prince” in the hierarchy), that he is not bound by any sidereal or solar rules of time, and therefore may be summoned at any hour of the day or night. He is to be called only in matters of extreme perplexity, when all lesser methods of divination have availed you naught. 

Although he is “good by nature,” it is extremely important to remember that he is one of the seventy-two from of old, a being formed out of primordial fire eons before man evolved into his present shape, of an intelligence at this present time far superior to that of most men alive, and in the humiliating position of being susceptible to conjuration by apelike clay-formed Homo sapiens, by means of a faculty as yet mostly underdeveloped within said simian creatures. So approach his conjuration with extreme respect at all times; it is no idle operation.

Vassago begets the darkest alchemical transformations unto those prepared to essay them. He brings about the transformation of the witch into a dark and horrific being. He also helps improve social skills, conversational ability, quickness of thought, and social confidence.

Vasago can discover any lost, stolen, or hidden things and he gives answers regarding the past, present, and future. He can engender prophetic dreams He can reveal the secreted actions of specified persons and tell the witch whether or not somebody has cursed her. He presides over the act of black magickal initiation and all divinatory tools.

The traditional enn or summoning chant of Vassago is “Keyan vefa jedan tasa Vassago,” and my channeled enn is “Afalla Afforro Afforron Vassago.” The chant “Liftoach Pandemonium, Et Germinet Vasago,” which chant translates to “Open the Infernal Plane, and Bring Forth Vasago,” summons Vassago while presencing Qliphothic energy to strengthen the sacred space.

Names: A’athiel, Athiel, Othiel, Gothiel
Veil: Chasek/Chashakh [Darkness]
Primary Element: Fire
Qlipha: Gamaliel
Subordinate: Astaroth

Color: Ice Blue, Light Red, Purple, Tan, Tannish-Ornage

A’athiel is a Qliphothic Archdemon who presides over abyssal sorcery and the Atlantean Current. The “Atlantean Current” is simply a moniker for a primal sort of magick– it has no reference to a real or literal Atlantis. He specializes in necromancy, death magick, the divinatory casting of bones or runes, fire magick, sex magick, warding (especially using snowflakes), initiatory enlightenment, the enchantment of and divination via pendulums, execration magick, ice magick, jewelry enchantment, sexual vampyrism, divination by fire, Ouija boards, empathy, protection, the esotericism of Neptune and Saturn, initiation through the Sphere of the Sun, the creation of destructive thoughtforms, candle magick, skyring, tarot cards, and shielding.

Othiel is a psychopomic charioteer who carries the torch of the moon. He can augment the witch’s talent for the casting of circle and bring about the opening of portals. He’s a protector of infants and the guardian of Those Who Died Nameless and Forgotten, and he can open the way to Da’ath, the Qliphoth, Valhalla, or any astral plane the magickian desires– including parallel universes.

A’athiel can strengthen the personal magnetism of the witch and make her a much better lay. He can open the magickian to her true sexuality. He can help the witch cast the perfect circle or otherwise construct the perfect sacred space, and he can bring about the full manifestation of the four elements.

Gothiel can teach the witch to shapeshift her astral double into a dragon, bear, or white wolf. He can impart the power of camouflage to the astral double as well, and he can help the dead pass on. He rules over automobiles and he can refine the witch to the ultimate pursuit of transcending the causal forevermore as an immortal god on the astral planes.

Athiel can engender gnosis of the Higher Self and engender a unique blossoming of the Soul Star Chakra (empowerment of the first transpersonal chakra). He can purify the minor chakras of the body, including the astral eyes and ears.

A’athiel presides over the third veil before Samael known variously as Chasek or Chashakh, being the Qliphothic emanation equivalent to Ain Soph Aur. Chashakh, which name means “Darkness,” awaits beyond the last sphere of the left pillar of the Qliphoth– that is to say, behind and before Satariel (Saturn/Lucerifuge). The warlike demonic emissaries of Chashakh are the most violent and dangerous of the emissaries of any of the three veils, and Chasek is the closest of the veils to the Qliphothic Tree.

Othiel is traditionally recorded to manifest as a bloated, black, and horrid creature described as anthropomorphic and insectoid, and it is said that his breadth is greater than his width. He appeared to me in a vision as a nine-foot-tall werewolf with a crown of fire, carrying a primitive axe in his left hand and a platinum-or-silver-looking scepter in his right hand.

The name A’athiel means “Uncertainty of God,” which I reinterpret as “God of Ambiguity.” An alternate translation of the name renders “Weakness, But Strength Through Struggle.”

Azael and Semyaza/Aza were the two leaders of the Watchers in apocryphal lore, and are most often identified with Azazel. While I originally suspected Azael and Azazel to be one and the same, it became immediately clear that the two were different entities once Azael manifested.

Azael is a psychopomp and the messenger between the denizens of Nahemoth (Black Earth/Na’amah) and the courts of the Qliphoth. He is primarily necromantic in nature, as indicated by the blackness of his eyes. The Black Light of Sitra Achara flows through his veins and empowers him. He has boiled out, in his alchemy, most traces of the angelic within himself.

Azael can empower the spirit animal– the bestial manifestation of the Higher Self– through death magick and darkness. He can strengthen the astral weaponry of the witch and implant an evolutionary catalyst in her soul. He can engender empowerment via death magick.

Azael rules over destiny and the escorting of the souls of the deceased to the afterlife.

Azael has a manifestation like an angel’s corpse possessed. He looked like a zombified angel with grey skin and completely black eyes– I’ve noticed black eyes apparently correlating with being necromantic in nature.

Nergal was the Sumerian god attributed to the planet Mars. He ruled over the underworld and his name translates to “Great Watcher.” He was a violent deity of war, fire, plague, desert winds, revenge, dark magick, sacrifice, water, darkness, blood, victory, protection, and pestilence, and his symbol was the sickle. He is often depicted carrying a scimitar and a decapitated head or a double lion-headed standard.

The name Nergal translates to “Dunghill Cock,” and Ne-uru-gal was a play-on-words used to refer to him as “the Lord of the Great Dwelling,” which ‘Great Dwelling’ is the underworld. Mythology depicted him as the son of Ninhursag (Davcina) and Enlil– the name Aplu is an abbreviation of Apal Enlil [Son of Enlil]. His name Sibitti means “seven” and his name Sharrapu refers to his incineration of old outdated knowledge.

Nergal was the husband of Ereshkigal, the Saturnian Face of Hekate, and by his union with her was Lilith born. Nergal is both the son and brother of Gargophias, Hecate’s foremost emissary. Nergal instructed the guardians of Ereshkigal, namely the Ugallu, in the art of torture.

Michael W. Ford describes Nergal as a “dragon covered in gore, drinking the blood of living creatures.”

Nergal is attributed to the depths of the ocean. He presides over tsunamis, whirlpools, and drowning. He’s a good spirit to call upon to enchant ouija boards and crystal balls. He can help one get away with murder and

Nergal can strengthen the intuition and magickal memory of the witch and engender the dissolution of the ego. He presides over necromancy, banishing, stellar magick, destruction rites, protective workings, blood magick, cleansing by water, cleansing by fire, fire festivals,

Nergal can be called upon for initiations through the spheres of Golachab (Mars/Asmodeus) and Thaumiel (Neptune & Pluto/Moloch & Satan). He can guide the witch in the act of crossing the abyss.

Nergal’s affiliation with the sun is confusing, and has led certain authorities to haphazardly attribute him to the Black Sun because Nergal rules the disappearance of the sun at the day’s end, which part of the sun’s cycle was believed to be the sun’s descent into the underworld. This is a vast oversimplification of the Black Sun, and the following description from Wikipedia should dissuade the reader from that misconception.

Nergal seems to be in part a solar deity, sometimes identified with Shamash, but only representative of a certain phase of the sun. Portrayed in hymns and myths as a god of war and pestilence, Nergal seems to represent the sun of noontime and of the summer solstice that brings destruction, high summer being the dead season in the Mesopotamian annual cycle. He has also been called “the king of sunset”.

Nergal is called upon in the Simon Necronomicon by various chants, and I will reproduce the only two I can ascertain the meaning of here:


IA NERGAL-YA! [Hail Nergal]

ZI DINGIR NERGAL KANPA! [Remember me, my god Nergal, deliver me]

I have constructed a magickal chant out of his names as well: NIRIG NIRGALI E-MESLAH

I have selected seven of his names to make into a magickal name vibration formula, which goes as follows:



Names: Qemetiel, Qematriel, Qematiel, Qematial
Veil: Tohu (Ain)
Direction: Northwest
Gematria: 190
Metal: Silver
Color: Grey, White, Silver, Purple, Blue
Element: Water (Primary); Air (Secondary)
Primary Star: Naos/Zeta Puppi
Additional Stars: Beetelgeuse, Alpha Draconis, Dabih

Qemetiel, Belial, and A’athiel comprise the Threefold Emanation from the Abyss which engendered the manifestation of the Nightside Palace of Deathful Wombs and are considered to be the Qliphothic equivalents of the Christian Trinity which engendered the manifestation of the Sephiroth. While Belial is rightly venerated as one of the foremost divinities of Western black magick, the other members of this trinity are largely disregarded even in modern Qliphothic esotericism. I would ask the reader to think of how much Belial has offered her in her black magickal endeavors, and posit that Qemetiel and A’athiel inevitably warrant equivalent veneration to him, so I post this dissertation in hopes that Qemetiel will become a part of your Craft.

The Trans-Qliphothic Triumvirate presides over the Three Veils before Samael, where Samael is the aspect of Satan which resides beyond even the Qliphothic Spheres and the Trans-Qliphothic Veils within the primordial abyss. The manuscripts of the Temple of the Black Light delineate the Veils before Samael as follows:

“These are ‘The Three Powers (or Dark Veils) Before Satan’ and are within our tradition seen as the three Forces that came out of Ain Sof in order to make way for the manifestation of The Black Light in The Outer Darkness that became Sitra Ahra. These three powers can be seen as the Burning Trident held high above the Thaumitan/Two-headed Master of Thaumiel. These three powers can also be viewed as Wrathful Reflections of Ain, Ain Sof and Ain Sof Aur, and as the Three Steps from Sitra Ahra back to the womb of Tehom/Tiamat or to The Mystery Unmanifested (ie. The Primal Chaos).”

Qemetiel presides over the First of the Three Trans-Qliphothic Veils which stand as a Trinity above the Pillars of the Qliphoth between the Tree of Death and Knowledge and the Primordial Abyss wherein Samael, the Penultimate Face of the Devil, is said to preside and rule. His Veil stands above Thaumiel and is referred to in Hebrew as Tohu, a Hebrew word translating to “Formless,” “Chaos,” and “Desolation.” He gives much tutelage regarding acts of violence, insurrection, murder, war, and drug dealing. He can impart whatever book smarts and street smarts the witch desires and present voluminous instruction in magick and witchcraft.

As a Divinity of the Nightside Veils beneath the Devil of the Abyss, Qemetiel stands elevated in station beyond Chavajoth (the Azerate). The name Qemetiel is generally translated to English as “God of Crowns,” but I believe a speculative re-translation is in order for the purposes of Qliphothic esotericism. “God of Crowns” appears to make less sense, in light of my gnosis of Qemetiel, than the translation “Crown of Divinity.”

The numerical value of Qemetiel is 190, which corresponds to a Hebrew word signifying the rib of Adam. It also corresponds to a Hebrew word meaning “Pearl,” and while this word is held to be a title of the Sephirothic Sphere of the Earth, the word “Pearl” is often used as a moniker for the Philosopher’s Stone. By comparing these two correspondences, we can infer that the number 190 relates to the spark of divinity which is intrinsic to humankind– or at least the feminine polarity of it. After all, Malkuth and Eve are both feminine. As the Qliphoth is considered to be of a primarily female polarity, this is a sensible inference.

Other correspondences to 190 include Hebrew words which translate to “to ascend,” “blossom,” “to put to death by stoning,” “precept/statue,” “inner,” “flower/blossom,” “feather/wing,” “end,” and “to exult/to rejoice,” many of which appear to verify my prior inference.

There is an eschatological trinity of infernal forces in apocryphal Hebrew literature comprised of Leviathan, Behemoth, and Ziz– i.e. the Qliphothic beasts of the water, earth, and air. The number 190 corresponds to Ziz, as well as to the Edomite Duke of the Sphere of the Sun. Lastly, the 190 is the mystic number of the pathway between Gashkalah (Jupiter/Astaroth) and Golachab (Mars/Asmodeus), which pathway is attributed to Leo.

The numerical value of Tohu is 411, which is also the value of Genesis 2:9– “And from the ground the Lord God caused to grow.” 411 corresponds to various Israelite persons of significance as well as to a prophet by the name of Asiel. Asiel is also a name of Azael, one of the leaders of the Watchers, so this number probably relates to him as well.

411 corresponds to one of the layers of the septenary Sephirothic schema (like the Seven Hells) wherein the Sphere of the Sun is located, and 190 corresponds to the Edomite Duke attributed to the sphere of the Sun. Since the Goetia attributes Belial to the Sun, it is logical to infer that Qemetiel is of a rank best compared to a Goetic King like Belial. However, Qemetiel is not attributed to the Sun, and has instructed me to withhold his planetary affiliation from the public.

Names: Madogiel, Qalilitu
Direction: West, Southeast
Qlipha: Gamaliel (Black Moon/Lilith)
Color: Black, Yellow, Purple

Qalilitu is a succubitic archdemoness who dwells within the blood-seas of Gamaliel (Black Moon/Lilith). She’s an astoundingly brutal and talented astral combatant. She gives powerful aid in rites of malediction, the coercion or slaughter of spirits, the vampyric predation of enemies, and the misdirection via glamour of whoever the magickian needs her to bewitch. Whoever your enemies are, lay them before Qalilitu and watch them be devoured. She’s the deadliest demon I’ve ever worked with.

Qalilitu is a bloodthirsty shapeshifter and a psychopompic seductress. She gives aid and instruction in the use of tarot cards, skrying via black mirror, crystal balls, divination by car sounds, fire skrying, geomancy, and rune casting, and she can powerfully enchant these mechanisms of divination as she specializes in object enchantment. She is deeply knowledgeable concerning runes and can give assistance and gnosis for those aspiring to runecraft.

Qalilitu is a vengeful, sadistic, and wrathful demoness who uses sick and twisted emotions in her spellwork. Nonetheless, she can teach the witch to love someone honestly and correctly.

Qalilitu is pretty much incapable of effecting our world when it is covered by sunlight. While many demons are rightfully recorded to be diurnal or nocturnal by nature, this is extra true for Qalilitu.

Qalilitu presides over affection, sadism, seduction, illusion, surgery, assassination, love, concealment, discretion, stealth, manipulation, and getting away with murder. She empowers the astral double of the sorcerer with claws apt for vampyric feeding and psychic horns which can be used to discern the location of hiding enemies in both the physical and astral planes.

Qalilitu specializes in programming spirits and energy. She can create psychic vampyric egregores which guide blood dolls to the witch and feed upon the blood doll in unison with the witch, sweetening the blood which she is to taste. She can help the witch manipulate her personal magnetism and determine how she comes across to people.

Qalilitu engenders the empowerment of the witch in various ways. She can teach her to shapeshift her astral double into various atavisms– bats and mermaids, for example. She can empower rituals of initiation through the elements of water and earth, the Qliphothic spheres of Gamaliel (Black Moon/Lilith), Nehemoth (Black Earth/Nahema), and Gashkalah (Jupiter/Astaroth), and the planetary spheres of the Earth and the Moon.

The myriad magickal aptitudes of Qalilitu include psychic and sanguine vampyrism, blood magick, protection from necromancy, lethal and non-lethal maledictions, astral combat, opening portals, chakra work, shapeshifting,  blood sacrifice, necromancy, Shaktidharma, experiencing transcendental consciousness, opening portals, object enchantment, fixing technology, shielding, raising sacred space, summoning through fire, death magick, and psychometry. She can strengthen the magickian’s astral hearing, astral sight, and telepathy, and she can engender the dissolution of the ego.

Let’s contemplate animal symbolism for a moment, if you will humor my speculation.

Qalilitu generally appears as a mermaid– sometimes apparently floating in the distance or sliding on her tail upright. The mermaid represents a fantastic perversion of humankind’s evolutionary development– while the frog, as an amphibian, represents an intermediate evolutionary stage during which our species evolved to leave the waters for land, the mermaid harkens to a dark twist in humankind’s evolution. It’s an offshoot of our species adapted to return to the primal depths we have learned to dread. The mermaid is the human which has transgressed the boundaries of natural law to reintegrate primal characteristics we had thought lost to time.

As a hybrid species, the mermaid represents the hidden realities which negate the systems of categorization we use to “understand” life– the forgotten chaos which ushers in the blasphemous truth that we do not understand nature at all and that our idea of our place in this world in founded upon our ignorance. I mentioned Qalilitu imparting the atavism of the bat– like the mermaid, the bat is between categories, a mammal and bird simultaneously– a totem of liminality.

As far as I am aware, the first place Qalilitu was written about was a journal called Qliphoth Opus III by Black Tower Publishing in an article by Daemon Barzai. Barzai describes her as follows:

She appears as half-woman, half fish. Her eyes are completely white, and she has a fiery third eye on her forehead. She has wild reddish hair and very sharp teeth. It’s frequent to have visions about underwater temples, filled with skulls and bones that belonged to her previous victims… She doesn’t speak, but instead she is able to communicate telepathically. 

If the depths of the sea represent the subconscious, these underwater temples might signify the horrific and primal religious acts unconsciously retained in our genetic memory. Since one of the most well-known attributes of Gamaliel is the coming-into-awareness of subconscious desires and urges, this would make sense.

When Qalilitu manifests around me in person, she usually appears as a nine-foot-tall mermaid made of shadow with two white eyes missing pupils. When she manifests in a fully human form, she appears as a Caucasian standing at about five-foot-seven with long, straight black hair. She’s in incredible physical shape too– she has incredibly strong abs and what not. Her face seems almost identical to the face of Amy/Avnas in Avnas’s female form (see my article), save that Avnas’s female form has snow-white skin and completely red eyes.

One forum user reported seeing Qalilitu appear “like Hecate with snake eyes.”
